There are many opportunities for students to earn and achieve financial support for post-secondary studies. 

Students should actively seek out and research all available financial support. They can see their guidance counselor for more details. As scholarships and bursaries have firm guidelines and application deadlines, students should leave themselves ample time to complete the application process. Students should make note of all deadlines and ensure they have all documentation in on time. There are many opportunities available for scholarship outside of Grade 12 as well. It is never too soon to begin to seek out opportunities and to apply. 

A scholarship is awarded first on the basis of academic achievement while a bursary is awarded primarily on the basis of financial need. Neither has to be repaid. More Information is available from Student Services.

Many post-secondary institutes and scholarship granting agencies, require references. Teachers and administration write many letters for students. Being specific in the purpose of the reference letter and ensuring students allow ample time to
complete the letter is always very helpful and makes for a stronger reference in the end.

Awards and Scholarships

We are very proud of our students at Jack James. To recognize their effort and achievement, a number of awards are presented each reporting period. These include honour, merit, improvement, service and attendance awards in the academic and vocational areas.

In June, year-end awards are presented. These include the awards mentioned above as well as major awards for citizenship, athletics and overall awards. Cash awards and scholarships are available for our top students in each grade.

More information regarding awards and scholarships may be obtained from the Guidance Department.
